She was advanced in years, having lived with her husband seven years from when she was a virgin, 37 and then as a widow until she was eighty-four.[a] She did not depart from the temple, (B)worshiping with (C)fasting and prayer night and day. 38 And coming up at that very hour she began to give thanks to God and to speak of him to all who were (D)waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem.
